ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Mike Bibby, Shooting guard Joe Johnson, Small forward Marvin Williams, Power forward Josh Smith, Center Al Horford. Bench -- Guard Flip Murray, Guard Acie Law IV, Guard Mario West, Guard Mo Evans, Guard Speedy Claxton, Forward Thomas Gardner, Forward Othello Hunter, Forward Solomon Jones, Forward/Center Zaza Pachulia, Center Randolph Morris.PLAYER NOTES:
--G Mike Bibby rebounded from a tough start against the Blazers to finish with 15 points, five assists and four rebounds. He made just three of his eight shots from beyond the three-point line but all three makes were crucial.
--C Al Horford was at his best against yet another oversized frontline. He and Josh Smith gave the Blazers big fits with their activity and athleticism. Horford only had five rebounds but his numbers this night didn't do him any justice. He was better than that.
--F Josh Smith showed once again why he's one of the unique talents in the league. He finished with 19 points, eight rebounds and three assists but guarded everyone from Steve Blake to Joel Pryzbilla.
--F Marvin Williams is out indefinitely with a lower back injury.
--G Speedy Claxton remains on the inactive list with a hamstring injury and doesn't appear to be in the Hawks' plans any time soon.
